Ardnamurchan The Midgie 70cl


Bottling Notes:

Based in the rural Western Highlands as they are, they thought it was only right to celebrate the abundant, spectacular wildlife which surrounds their distillery. Having considered the animals which best represent the peninsula, they could come up with no better candidate than the midge, especially at this time of year!

They are delighted to be officially collaborating with Smidge on this release, which will be a limited edition batch of only 6200 bottles, available exclusively in the UK.

The whisky itself is no joke, with a complex, multi-faceted recipe combining peated and unpeated spirit, and whiskies matured in bourbon, sherry, sauternes and madeira casks. Bottled at 48%, this is a bright, layered dram, perfect for enjoying in the summer as you seek refuge from the hordes of insects!

Cask Type: 5 Madeira barriques,5 Sauternes barriques, 1 Sherry butt and 13 Bourbon barrels
